Our service in the area of fraud and financial crime includes advice and representation at all stages of proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (and, increasingly rarely, predecessor provisions under the Drug Trafficking Act 1994 and the Criminal Justice Act 1988).

We deal with confiscation proceedings in the Magistrates’, Crown, Administrative and other appellate Courts, with our Members often specifically brought in to deal with post-conviction confiscation where specialist expertise is sought.

We also act in relation to cash forfeiture, restraint, confiscation and enforcement receivership, and in relation to applications for civil recovery under Part 5.

We are able to assist interested parties to make representations under Section 10A of POCA, including on a direct access basis.
